New project tasks appear every day. Some of them have urgent deadlines. So every day, you have to adjust the priorities for each project and communicate them to the team. Tons of operations, don't you think? With Wrike project management software, it takes you just a couple of mouse moves to set, adjust and communicate project priorities.

  1. Set and adjust priorities. It's easier than you can imagine. Simply sort the tasks by priority and drag the most important tasks up the list with your mouse. Select "Show descendant" if you want to prioritize tasks in subfolders as well. Whenever you need to prioritize tasks across all your projects, go to the parent folder, select "Show descendant" and drag-and-drop tasks.

    If you have dozens of tasks, you might want to prioritize them for each person separately (filter the task list by responsible person first).

  2. Share and communicate priorities. The best thing about Wrike's priority system is that, if a project folder is shared with the team, the team already knows the up-to-date priorities. How? A person opens a project folder, chooses sorting by priority and voila. He or she sees tasks of the highest priority at the top of the list, just like you do. Every team member instantly sees the automatically updated project priorities with no extra effort from your side. This helps everyone clearly see what they should be focusing on first and promptly react to the changes in the volatile business environment.

Keeping your plan up-to-date and communicating priorities to the entire team is a challenge, but with Wrike project management software, it is a piece of cake. We'd love to know what you think. Have you already used Wrike's prioritization function? Did you learn anything new from this post?
